News Release

The 84th National Tournament was held between 3 May and 26 May 2014. This year there were only three (3) categories. The final results for the Singles A, Singles B and Doubles are posted here. In previous years there has been an All Events category but this year it was dropped since there were only singles and doubles available. As you may notice from the results the turnout was light. This has been a major concern over the last couple years and we are looking at changing the format in order to bring back interest in the event.

We would like to thank those who did participate in the 84th National Tournament and congratulate the winners.

Game Coupons

The NDBC has made several changes in what is distributed to our members. One of those decisions was to cease printing the coupon books after discovering they aren't being used as much as we expected. The decision doesn't mean the program went away. We are now providing the coupons on this website. Please visit the Membership page to download a printable PDF coupon that can be taken to the lanes with you. Thank you for continuing to be a bowler of record by sanctioning through your league.
